TO THE FISHER
MEN OF EASTERN
The 'Fisheries Oommi<»un
Board, at its last meeting held
oo the Std o( July, adopted the
“It ahaii be unlawlul to use
any net, aeine or similar appliance
for cafechinN fish in the waters of
Noftfa Carolina, having a bar of
leas than one and one hall (H)
Inches or a mesh of less than
three (8) inches before tarring.
This rule shall go into eflect 8ep
' tember 1st, 1919."
(Since the organisation of this
Board, the greatest problem that
has confronted it, has been to
adopt some measure which would
prevent the destruction of small
•ah. At a meeting soon after its
organisation, the Board passed a
rule that uo oet or seine oi leas
. thaalft inches bar or 8 inches
mesh should be used in the. wa
ters of the State. Tnis rule met
with opposition, and, in defer
ence to the views of many of the
iabermen, the Bov id modified it,
reducing the site of mesh and
pscacribed the minimum sixe of
■ fish that could be bought and
sold, in the hope that this might,
is some way at least, remedy the
trouble, instead of accomplish
ing this purpose, it has been, to
a great extent, a failure and small
fish are stiU being destroyed in
great oumbvra. The continuance
of this means that the children
and grandchildren of the present
generation will be deprived of a
Uvlihood (or themselves as the
iah In the waters will soon be de
picted. Tbe only other methods
of preservation of the fish is to
cull them as they are taken from
the waters and are still altuc, or
to use a larger mesh. Tbe fisb
eimeo claim that it is impossible
to cull the fish with any degree
of satisfaction as they are taken
from the nets, and hence the
Board haa been forced to the
conclusion that it is necessary to

A LAWN PARTY
Tlieic will l>c a lawn party giv
en Saturday evening August 18,
Irorn 7 to 11 F. M., on the lawn
just in front of the Presbyterian
church. This party will be under
the auspices of the Ladies' Mis
sionary Society of the church.
The object of the party is to de
fray a small debt which is still

On Sunday evening, August 0,
there were forty three children,
with open minds and hearts as
sembled in the new Sunday school
room, there to receive from their
faithful teachers the teaching of
our Saviour. When we remember
the words of our Saviour when
be said “Suffer little children to
come unto me, and forbid them
not: for of such is the king lorn
of God," we know that if He had
been there io bodily form He
would have been delighted to
have taught these little ones.
The same evening the total num
ber in Sunday school was sixty
six and had it not been for the
new annex we could not have ac
At present, in the world-wide
conflict between earthly powers,
the ladies* of our town and coun
try are doing s great work for
suffering humanity through the
Red Croas Society. There are
many ladies of our town who, on
account of the laek of time, can
not do so much as others (or the
National Bed Cross work but
through their Missionary Society
and the teaching of these little
ones are doing a far greater work
ior a far greater Red Cross in a
tar greater conflict. This confliot
is between the forces of evil and
the forces of good contending for
the souls of the boys and girls
and men and women of our com
munity. This Bed Croas has been
made red by the blood of a dying
Saviour who came to be crucified
in order that we might win In
we extend a cordial invitation
to all who will to come and do
what they can in helping these
faithful ladies in providing more
roo,m in which these children can
be led to higher and nobler lives.
What shall it profit a town if it
gaip the whole world and lose
its own boys and girls?
